ECAL, a plural school – what a beautiful alliteration! If originality and singularity can be undeniable strengths, especially in a school of art and design, so is plurality. Being oneself, but with others! The 2021 graduation projects are a particular example of this richness, embracing a multitude of contemporary and societal themes as well as offering a wide range of techniques to illustrate each student’s point. Strength in numbers!

The variety of BA and MA courses underpins this diversity, but it also feeds on one of ECAL’s main specificities: transversality. This porosity between the different disciplines provides our students from all over the world with effective tools to support their approach and to enter the professional world from different angles. ECAL’s acronym may consist of four letters, but the field of possibilities offered includes the whole alphabet:

A: Active
B: Brilliant
C: Commitment
D: Diversity
E: Engagement
F: Future
G: Generosity
H: Humour
I:  Innovation
J: Joy
K: Knowledge
L:  Liberty
M: Motivation
N: Nurture
O: Originality
P: Passion
Q: Quality
R: Rigor
S: Skills
T: Transversality
U: Usefulness
V: Value
W: Work
X: Xenophilia
Y: Yippee
Z: Zenith

Twenty-six letters arbitrarily jazzed-up of course, but with which you will be able to write the rest of your own story post-ECAL. It will be long and full of successes, with a large plural S at the end, I hope, just like our institution, which celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2021!

G.O.O.D. L.U.C.K.!

May You Live in Interesting Times was the title of Rugoff's Venice Biennale a couple of years ago. Then the whole world suddenly shuddered. Present times are more than interesting: they are hard and challenging. I was excited and moved to see the works of young photographers using their medium not only as a tool for documenting reality, but also for resisting, transcending and reinventing it.

The 2021 MA graduates in Industrial Design showed projects in a large variety of topics that reflected the group's diversity. The students challenged themselves in the depth of research and quality of execution. They also challenged the notion of what design means today, venturing beyond product design into the design of protest, education or media formats.
Eckert Maise

The graduation projects were very impressive – most of them hugely innovative, many with huge market potential and several were basically ready for production. I myself graduated from ECAL 18 years ago. To witness the presentation of the graduation works as a jury member was an emotional moment that brought back a lot of memories and reminded me of how it feels when everything seems possible.

In my practice, ECAL is never far away, as so many of my colleagues have graduated from there. So it was an honour to be invited again and have an intimate glimpse into the future.

Evelyn Vonesch – Sub Rosa

Diploma project by Evelyn Vonesch

Behind the shots, behind the frames, behind the scenes, Behind the protective walls and behind the screens, There, sub rosa, well sheltered, Hides the long, smooth thread That comes out of life. A cloud-like fibrous substance that feeds the cotton seeds, That keeps them alive, traps them but never soothes them, In its sun-drenched homeland. A thread of inclination and attachment, Connecting all and pointing to all. It never flaunts its beginning or its end. Real dramas are not played out in the limelight. When the curtain falls, look behind the scenes.

Lara Marino – Brain Scan

Diploma project by Lara Marino

Mention Bien Prix Ernest Manganel This is a retrospective of my work, a deeper visualisation of my dissertation and an extension of my research. Through the metaphor of a brain forest where several works, characters, spaces and objects take place and coexist. The body is also integrated as a form of landscape. An ecosystem filled with information where the work reveals its creation. Through the fascination of bodily evolution and decay, we discover figurative and chimerical pictorial environments that explore the relationship between the imaginary and maternal bonds. In the words of Romain Gary in his book Promise at Dawn : “With maternal love, life makes you a promise at dawn that it never keeps.”

The mixing of different techniques allows for both the readability and the loss of messages.

“Only a few of us, amid the great fabrications of society, hang on to our really childish reactions, still wonder naively what we are doing on the earth and what sort of joke is being played on us. We want to decipher skies and paintings, go behind these starry backgrounds or these painted canvases and, like kids trying to find a gap in a fence, try to look through the cracks in the world.” — Bataille, G. (1949). The Cruel Practice of Art Featuring transverse and hybrid spaces, closed and open, which bear witness to a process of construction of oneself and of the group by the appropriation of these spaces and their transformation, thanks to the childish character of each one. Twisting things, commuting rigid structures through use and escapig determinism with a certain lightness.

Terat Thanaworrawatniti – Gong Tek

Diploma project by Terat Thanaworrawatniti

Gong Tek refers to a Sino-Thai funeral where burning paper model replicas is a ritual used to offer objects to the dead. The video installation explores the relationship between physical and intangible spaces, such as virtual and cultural ones. The work captures the moment where these objects are transformed and translated into something else. By repurposing traditional elements and changing their context, tension between translation and mistranslation is created. When the light switches on, the viewer is challenged with a new space, which calls into question the process of image construction.

GRAPHIC DESIGN

Adeline Vermot – Victimes vs Héros

Diploma project by Adeline Vermot

This project is an analysis of gender representation in contemporary popular cinema. The choice of films was based on the ones that were the most successful at the box office. I was interested to see the messages they conveyed, as they had been seen by a large number of people. The choice was also based on French cinema since Hollywood has already dealt with these issues a lot. To do this, a system was established to compare the six films with each other as well as the situation of men and women. The content is in the form of images and dialogues from these films and is supplemented with infographics and texts. The result shows how strong stereotypes still are and that being aware of them is a first step towards deconstructing them.

Linguistic sexism expresses the gender-based discriminatory nature of some words and expressions in language. After drawing up an alphabetical list of misogynous terms in French such as “blondasse” (blonde bimbo), “pute” (whore) or “sorcière” (witch), I carried out research on each term, allowing me to take a variety of informative, funny, absurd or first-degree approaches to the word depending on its definition. This work took the shape of a book featuring a rich diversity of content. Page after page, archival images, rap punchlines and historical texts are mixed with series of popular images. The whole forms a book that questions and challenges readers according to their own sensitivity.

The project is a visual and textual research on the different aspects of Voguing , combining different methods of image processing, while offering a critique of the practices of its appropriation. A combination of rhythm, style, dance and performance, Voguing is a cultural form that is part of the Ballroom Scene founded in New York in the 1960s. This space of expression, sharing and performance is both a safe place and a means of expression for marginalised people but also a manifestation of the appropriation of the trans, queer, black, Afro-descendant and Latino space. Yet, it has been cyclically reduced to a mere trend, stripping it of all its history and claims.

Thaïs Nguyen Huu – Mises à nues

Diploma project by Thaïs Nguyen Huu

Mises à nues is a collection of five outfits. In my opinion, clothes are a reflection of who we are and the values we defend. Wearing an outfit is assuming one’s identity, being confident and loving oneself. Each outfit represents the series of gestures and attentions one can do for oneself to feel good and confident on a daily basis. Five women confided in me a part of their intimacy through a selfie and words they use to highlight their body. I then interpreted their stories and transcribed them on textile. Each fragment of life becomes a visual that is captured. Once worn, the static illustrations become a moving volume that takes our inner story to the outside world – out in the open, for ll to see.

The built-in modular power strip allows users to choose the type of socket to be installed according to their appliances. The tray around the power strip helps to store the cables when not in use. Thanks to the automatic cable reel, the main power cable is quickly stowed away and always available at the right length. This project was developed in close cooperation with Lista Office AG.

Celestin Tanari – Breathing Wall

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

Breathing Wall features raw clay building products developed for Swiss company Terrabloc, which specialises in compressed clay blocks. With excellent properties in terms of mechanical strength, durability and thermal inertia, the raw material comes from soil excavation waste from the French-speaking region of Switzerland, which is recycled into construction products. My approach aims to expand the catalogue of this company by designing two new blocks intended to be integrated into spaces: one for storage walls with multiple configurations and possible uses, the other to divide space while allowing light to pass through.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Julie Racaud – Fealing

Diploma project by Julie Racaud

Fealing is a collection of creative tools whose development is based on the field of art therapy. The project features a therapeutic approach that uses creation as an intermediary, allowing people to express themselves in ways other than with words. In this theme, the creative process, the emotions, the sensations felt, and the personality are paramount. However, behind the artists’ tools lies a level of requirement and expectations that can potentially limit the user’s creativity. I have therefore chosen to offer original tools that allow us to transform this level of requirement into a quest for discovery and to help us express our creativity through different gestures, forms and textures.

Margaux Mandrou – Drape

Diploma project by Margaux Mandrou

The writing of my dissertation, devised as a creative anthropology of the curtain, drove me to make one myself. As an architectural object, the curtain has different ceiling heights, depending on the space in which it is located.  With the support of Elitis, I developed several solutions to tighten, raise, crease or relax the curtain – in short, to adjust it without ever having to cut it. The excess length affects its shape and volume. The system offers a new flexibility of adjustment and suspension.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Julien Lindt – Jiko

Diploma project by Julien Lindt

Jiko is an outdoor wood-burning oven. It is inspired by African clay ovens known for their high efficiency in burning wood, which therefore have low CO2 emissions. I wanted to bring this object into our way of life, in our countries.  Domestic cooking is getting increasingly poor; I think we have lost the taste for cooking, especially with fire, which I think is the most beautiful and delicious way to cook food. Jiko is more ecological and just as efficient as our high-tech kitchens. Because of its modularity, it is easy to use and allows for a wide variety of cooking methods. In addition, its multi-directional shape allows people to gather together and create a friendly atmosphere.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Manon Novelli – Ephemeral Soap

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

Hotels generate a lot of waste, especially by offering small bottles of shower gel and soaps that are never really finished. Ephemeral Soap is a complimentary set for hotels including several shampoos, body and hand soaps. What makes them so special? They only last as long as a shower and a hand wash. The ingredients are whipped to incorporate air. When heated, these small air bubbles expand, and the soap becomes six times larger, just like popcorn, with a foamy texture. It is then covered by a thin protective layer of solid soap to avoid packaging. The set also includes reusable bamboo boxes to distribute the soaps in every room.

Gwenaëlle Auvry – T-Lom

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

Nowadays, we produce more and more waste. In an ecological and civic approach, composting areas have been developed in gardens and in composting centres. However, only 10% of this waste is truly recycled and composters do not offer solutions for apartments. T-Lom is a terracotta vermicomposter, designed for one to three people, to hang on your balcony. It takes up very little space and makes it easy to recover its precious juice, a powerful fertiliser for your plants.

Théo Blanchard – Roille

Diploma project by Théo Blanchard

The Roille chair is a response to the City of Lausanne’s desire to harmonise the design of restaurant terraces. The City plans to eliminate all plastic outdoor furniture and installations by 2022. Wooden and metal furniture will be preferred. The tubular structure and rolled aluminium sheeting make the chair very light. Its folding seat allows restaurant owners to keep the furniture on the terraces and/or to store them without water stagnation, making it easier for the waiters to set it up.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Luca Scalea – Inflabass

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

Setting up a sound system for an event requires considerable logistical resources. One element in particular takes up a lot of storage and transport space since it is filled with air. Why not deflate it? The Inflabass project completely redesigns the PA subwoofer using a new material previously reserved for water sports. When inflated, its large size increases the sound quality as well as its performance, which considerably reduces its power consumption. To dismantle it, the electronic part, contained in a small, easy-to-handle box, can be removed in a single movement. The rest of the structure deflates and can then be folded and rolled up to save as much space as possible and make transport easy.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Stéfanie Kay – Helia

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

Most people spend almost 90% of their time indoors, lit by artificial lights which, unlike the sun, do not change colour or intensity during the day, thus disturbing the circadian rhythm. Helia follows the user throughout the day – from waking up to falling asleep – varying its light intensity and colour and thus improving the user’s concentration, productivity, quality of sleep, mood, etc. Thanks to its modular head, Helia can be used to create either ambient or work light. The project, carried out in collaboration with the EPFL+ECAL Lab, turned out to be a very rewarding experience. Mixing different skills in one project was both interesting and instructive.

Souhaïb Ghanmi – Elos

Diploma project by Souhaïb Ghanmi

In the Swiss meat industry, there are more than 230,000 tonnes of waste each year from slaughterhouses. I focus on the recycling of food waste, especially bones, which pollute by disintegrating, and thus use as much of the animal as possible. Bone is, for me, a forgotten and unexploited material despite its many properties. Elos is a range of switches and sockets using bone meal for its electrical insulation properties. The socket is inspired by the articulation of the head of a femur to accompany the cable and thus avoid wear and tear, and the organic shapes of the switches are inspired by the cut of long bones. A cover variant combining a cable reel and a phone charging station has been added to the collection.

Thomas Blaser – Wastebag

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

Ethical travel is becoming more and more common. During a hiking or biking trip, waste can be a major nuisance if not properly managed. Wastebag is a range of bags designed to manage this waste during nature trips. Their shape and materials have been chosen to be both durable and easy to clean. They are also completely airtight, preventing odours from attracting insects and animals near the camp or the users’ belongings. The air can be removed from the bags through their valves to take up as little volume as possible. Finally, buckles on the back of the bag allow for flexibility in attaching to a backpack or a bicycle luggage rack.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Margot Paquette-Greeenbaum – Loop

Diploma project by Margot Paquette-Greeenbaum

Loop uses heat therapy as a comforting pain-relief solution. Used as a non-invasive way to treat injuries and cramps, external application of heat promotes vasodilation, relaxes tissues and stimulates blood flow to the affected area. Loop consists of a strap with pouch and reusable soy wax packs that can be heated in a microwave or boiling water. Thanks to the thermal properties of soy wax, the packs remain at high temperature as they transition to a solid state, allowing for prolonged use. The strap, which is worn under clothing, ensures that the heat pack remains in contact with the skin, while allowing the user to go on with their daily activities, hands-free.

INDUSTRIAL DESIGN

Eugénie Perrin – Pince

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

Pince is a continuation of my dissertation dedicated to objects made by farmers, who design their tools from existing objects that they reappropriate and transform to meet their own needs. Inspired by a homemade lamp found on a farm, Pince takes advantage of the raw and singular aspect of these objects, which are designed to be functional before any aesthetic consideration. The project thus borrows the robustness and the simplicity of design and construction from the typology of the tool and features a swivel head and fixing system that can be adapted to all types of supports. It is thus suitable for both DIY enthusiasts and craftspeople. Inspired by homemade objects, Pince is a product that has been designed in an industrial, ergonomic and aesthetic way.

Lucie De Martin – t-Plates

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

With the increase in home deliveries, the accumulation of single-use packaging is becoming a problem. While biodegradable items are the trend, new laws are being considered to ban them because of their non-recyclable nature. The most promising alternative therefore seems to be reusable tableware. t-Plates are reusable boxes for food delivery. The aim of the project is to significantly reduce the amount of waste and to accompany users towards more environmentally-friendly consumption. In order to ensure that the ecological message is consistent, the use of plastic materials is replaced by materials such as steel, textile or rubber. The shape of the proposed containers and elements is a synthesis of the requirements.

Camille Donias – Chaise de cérémonie

Diploma project by Camille Donias

A ceremonial chair, an assembly configuration in front of a lectern. In this range of inexpensive furniture, the chair, often covered with a Lycra cover, offers diversity to adapt to different events. This dialogue between structure and cover, between skeleton and skin appears essential. A stainless steel structure, at least, is required since it will be covered. Lightweight, the chairs are easily stacked and can be hooked together to form a multiple. A cover forms the seat and backrest. The movable armrests give the chair several shapes and uses. This movement contributes to the change of perception of the chair. Rethinking furniture that is sometimes despised, where the banal and ordinary become a defect.

The bike stand is a product that is systematically found in the workshops or garages of people who wish and like to maintain their motorbike at home. U-Lift innovates with a new design of this massive and cumbersome object, which aims to make it practical and compact so it may be taken into the world of motorbike travel. Greasing a chain or checking the oil level are essential maintenance tasks that must be carried out regularly on a motorbike, especially on long trips. These actions are not always easy to do when you do not have the right equipment. This product has been designed and adapted to offer the user the opportunity to carry out maintenance alone, in a simple and safe way.

Diploma project with Maddalena Casadei, Stéphane Halmaï-Voisard, Julie Richoz

The S-Board is a small skateboard made of recycled plastic, designed to be directly produced on a small scale. It is a minimalist means of transport that I have been developing for several years. Perfectly adapted to the urban environment and travel, it has several advantages. It can be stored in a backpack or hand luggage, it takes up very little space on a bus and it allows you to juggle between public transport and pavements. The proximity of the axles makes it possible to rotate within a very small radius in order to slalom easily or dodge an obstacle over a short distance. Its thickness makes it an extremely solid object. Lightweight, it is cost-effective in terms of materials and offers a practical means of transport.

Diploma project by Mariko Ito

Gestuelle is a collection of perfume bottles that revisits the ritual of putting perfume on. With a classic spray, a fragrance is layered on the skin and you can feel the packets of molecules, while with slower and more extensive diffusion, fragrances seem immediately airier and more faceted. Each type of bottle invites you to delicately deposit the fragrance on the skin or hair with a gesture that embellishes the perfume in contact with the body. The blown and sandblasted glass container allows the natural colour of the liquid to shine through, while the cap offers a unique identity to each type of bottle in the collection.

Marina Kottler – Seen by Shadows

Diploma project by Marina Kottler

Having a particular interest in research and curation, I have designed scenography to showcase a selection of objects in the shadows. This work is a continuation of my dissertation Une promenade dans l’ombre. My goal being to create a sensory exhibition, I based my work on Tanizaki’s In Praise of Shadows in which the author invites us to become aware of details that are only perceived in the shadows. Thanks to the latter, the senses are awakened, and objects offer their discreet beauty, imperceptible at first sight. Tanizaki writes: “We find beauty not in the thing itself but in the patterns of shadows, the light and the darkness, that one thing against another creates… Were it not for shadows, there would be no beauty.”

Grappaa is an artist-run exhibition space that I began working on in early 2021. It was built based on makeshift institutional spaces, e.g. art fairs and more recently, mass vaccination centres. The walls and furniture in these mega events become modules in the landscape of barren multipurpose warehouses. For Grappaa , through a process of urban hacking, the car parks become the grid for any spatial configuration. I pay rent by the hour. It’s not cheap.

Mention Très bien Through our entertainment media, partnerships and sponsored content are becoming omnipresent. Based on this observation, Reif i s a fictional account of the objectification of a digital influencer. Through different media created with computer generated images, we visualise the change of identity of this character who allocates areas of her body as advertising spaces, generating her metamorphosis from human to object. In order to realise the content for Reif , a process of digital production was set up, adjusting to the standards of avatar creation which affiliates this fiction to the current technical reality.

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Perrenoud, Pauline Saglio

In a world dominated by images, where content is constantly blasted at our brain, the race for maximum performance and ultra-high definition feels endless. (un)load chooses to go beyond the classic forms of digital experience. With this tool, we will try to dive into a molecular state, where the single unit becomes the whole. In a kind of reverse cinema, you will be deprived of some of your senses and will reach overload through extreme reduction. Expressing the constant overload we experience as a society and the capacity we have to construct our own relationship to the world, (un)load explores the narrative potential of immersive technologies, based on the senses and beyond representation. Warning: this work contains flashing lights.

Miksyn is an installation that invites us to rethink our relationship with living things by challenging our natural aversion to the various insects and arachnids of our domestic ecosystem, my primary motivation being to highlight the unexplored richness of microscopic forms. Miksyn is part of research on digital interactions with the microcosm. By decontextualising these tiny creatures under the lens of a high-resolution optical microscope, my project puts the spotlight on their imperceptible peculiarities. Can we use technology to overcome our bodily limitations and awaken a holistic conception of nature?

Nowadays, almost all of us have adopted the unconscious reflex of pulling out our smartphone when we are faced with some form of loneliness or passivity. Hence, it has become difficult for us to cope with waiting without the help of our cell phones. The aim of Oblique Reasoning is to invite users to question notions of attention economy and FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) while offering, in the manner of Oblique Strategies, reflections and alternatives. By recording unread notifications and quantifying them in units of time, this portable device offers us the possibility to step back and rethink our relationship with the smartphone.

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Perrenoud, Pauline Saglio

In 2020, we reached a tipping point with the mass of man-made artefacts exceeding the biomass on our planet. This is mainly due to an economic system of manufacturing and consumption where the overabundance of objects has become the norm.   Overloaded.supply is a semi-autonomous system that exploits the control of creation algorithms in order to question current patterns of design, production and legislation. To do so, the installation allows users, via a physical interface, to control an intangible, invisible and vast universe of objects where they can take possession of them through a fictitious patent document. This document will be stored on a dedicated website that acts as a repository of already protected objects that may or may not be produced. https://overloaded.supply/

Confessionnal is a web app that enables users to anonymously confess their behaviour on social networks. With the advent of social media years ago, the behaviour of users varies. Unmentionable acts are sometimes committed on these platforms. This project is inspired by the Catholic confessional as we know it but is based on the digital era we live in. Users live the anonymous experience with a mask as participants or spectators. They confess orally and personalise their mask based on their age, the platform or the main subject of the confession. On the other hand, they can observe other masks and listen to the confessions of other users.

The barrier of entry to sound synthesis software has historically been kept high by visually abstract, overloaded interfaces and expensive ecosystems like those of Pure Data or MAX . Tone Alembic seeks to make sound experimentation accessible to a beginner audience. It does so by offering a platform consisting of a digital interface that abstracts many of the concepts of synthesis in favour of a more visual approach and a set of MIDI controllers that allow more hands-on interaction with the interface while providing everything one needs to get started creating sounds.

Through a narrative experience, Sanctuaires invites visitors to discover their relationship with plants. This project is structured as an interactive exhibition on the great trees of the city of Lausanne. As in a treasure hunt, visitors have to look for the trees, thanks to clues and a map on the app. When they find one, they connect to it through touch, thus triggering the beginning of the experience. Like a wise storyteller, the sanctuary-tree shares a tale with the visitors, telling them about its sensitive experience and observable universe. Urban tree development coincides with the advent of issues related to the ecological crisis. What do trees have to say about this and how can their perception help us improve our lifestyles?

Mention Très bien IFTTA (If This Then Authenticate) is a modular authentication kit that allows users to design passwords to access their digital environment. Nowadays the majority of online services require complex authentication from their users. However, our ability to manage our passwords is becoming time consuming: we forget, make mistakes and retype. By default, we have accepted the present systems in place: double verification, SMS, phone calls, e-mails, etc. What if we tried something different? A more personal approach for example. This kit reflects the way we want to view our relationship with passwords. Each of the proposed modules involves a distinct mnemonic interaction: touch, position in space, hearing and sight. These elements can be added up as well in order to design a personalised authentication system.

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Perrenoud, Pauline Saglio

Once upon a time, a few Homo Sapiens allowed humanity to escape the endless cycle of life and death. Together, leaving behind their individuality, they merged into a new form of existence, beyond humanity – as if in this second genesis man had created God in his own image. Data Riot questions the foundations of human individuality through a social science fiction halfway between a video game and a music video. Enter a futuristic world and experience your transplantation into a collective intelligence to the rhythm of the electronic sounds of the collective Curl. Based on your personal data and your decisions, the experience adapts to you and offers a disturbing experience of your own identity.

Diploma project with Alain Bellet, Christophe Guignard, Gaël Hugo, Laura Perrenoud, Pauline Saglio

Is This the Middle East? investigates representation of the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) in a selection of video games. I am interested in the patterns, repetitive artefacts, locations and texts in games that claim to be set in the MENA region. These objects become archetypes. Are these photo-realistic environments also realistic in the scenes they depict or do they become another backdrop for war-related games? Using photogrammetry to reconstruct these environments, I address the implications of seeing an abundance of often over-simplified images of the Middle East, especially in a world where video games are becoming not only a global phenomenon, but also a means to encounter other cultures.

Emeline Courcier – Under the Ashes of the Mekong

Diploma project by Emeline Courcier

Mention Excellent / Prix Elinchrom. Under the Ashes of the Mekong is a film that questions the coexistence of opposed traditions and cultures, life and death, and the confrontation between history and individual stories. Against the backdrop of the health crisis and anti-Asian racism, family ties are revealed through conversations questioning my place as a Viet Kieu daughter and my lineage. Through our beliefs in reincarnation, I project myself onto a familiar yet foreign figure: my mother’s cousin, who drowned in the Mekong, creating a link between past and present, war and peace, words and silence. It is through traumatic memory and psychological heritage that the after-effects of a war from which my family escaped reach me, taking precedence in my dreams and my mind.

David Benito Py – Pigeons, They Make Up the Beehive

Diploma project by David Benito Py

Every city is the unique work of its inhabitants and, paradoxically, it concerns every one of them in a different way. In my opinion, in order to solve the apparent contradiction between intimacy and urbanity, the appropriation of space, both material and mental, is necessary. Only then can urban wandering be experienced as a real sensory experience. Through this installation, I invite visitors to live my personal experience of space, horizontal and vertical, contemplative and obsessive. As Jean-Christophe Bailly put it, “Each city has its own slang and has, within itself, a clandestine city that pierces it in scattered meshes whose bare thread the stroller puts back together.”

Diploma project by Jenna Callewaert

Mention Bien. What do you do when you miss everything? How do you avoid being haunted by the place you left? A painful absence mixed with hope, nostalgia that associates past and future, like a paradox. Above all, this project is a quest: that of finding a part of myself in a country where I once lived, and whose only memories I had were of colours, smells and sensations. Throughout my journey, I sought to explore and confront these memories built on a form of absence. Between dismay and delight, I often asked myself the question of the integrity of these images. Were these memories real or pure fabrications of the mind? I thus designed this book with the aim of capturing a process of transformation where each image, composed of sepia, shadows and ochre, carries in its flesh the testimonies of the past and illustrates that nothing ever dies.

Diploma project by Axelle Bruniau

Leughenaer is an autobiographical fiction about my relationship to my childhood in a particular geography and culture – Dunkirk – a city in the north of France. This film refers particularly to my non-binarity and transfemininity in a social context where carnival culture and cross-dressing are an important part of life for three months a year. The architecture of the city of Dunkirk is of particular interest to me because of the parallel I can draw with my own person. This city was 90% destroyed during World War II and was quickly rebuilt into a modern city. Deconstructing in order to reconstruct, that is how I went back to make this film.

Antoine Martin – Via Alpina

Diploma project by Antoine Martin

Mention Bien / Prix La Foncière. Swiss iconography presents the mountains under two ambivalent aspects: on the one hand, a hostile and dangerous environment, and on the other hand, an environment tamed and dominated by humankind. The interesting aspect of this project is that it transposes certain characteristic images from this iconography and leads viewers to question the boundary between stereotypes and the reality in which they live. It also questions the use of mountains as an “artefact” conveyed by commercial clichés. Viewers are led to get involved physically with the image by immersing themselves in the relief of this alpine imaginary, forced to observe the paradox of its symbolic and monumental reduction through commercial imagery.

Clara Roumégoux – Territoires du geste

Diploma project by Clara Roumégoux

The video Territoires du geste features portraits of women of different generations living in France with a dual cultural identity. From gesture to speech, the question of transmission emerges thanks to a modest mechanism, where material and immaterial dimensions meet between stories and culinary activities. How does the gesture become a symbol of silent resistance? The kitchen stages the political elements that history reveals. From couscous to meatballs, ma’amoul and Turkish coffee, these foodstuffs of historical and cultural heritage bring us back to the resulting spiritual heritage. The movement of the hands sets the stage for the political elements that their words weave, right down to the psyche of dreams and fears.

Alizée Quinche – They Blossom at Night

Diploma project by Alizée Quinche

Mention Bien They Blossom at Night explores the vision of a shifting biotechnological intimacy, the opening to an altered state of consciousness towards an undefined space, a moment in time when the connection between bodies becomes fluid(s), a form of sexuality where each partner, each relationship, transforms and helps beings evolve through sharing and emancipation. Featuring an immersive video-sound installation, the project appropriates the symbolic force of procreation. It explores the materiality of non-reproductive sexuality by developing a microbiological creature that represents the transmissions of polyamorous intimacy. The work expresses the cohesion between the organicity of relationships and a form of technology that allows for different social liberations, in reference to medically assisted procreation.

Diploma project by Justine Willa

In the summer of 2021, Asclepios, a scientific association, organised a mission in the Swiss Alps, simulating life on a celestial body other than Earth. Confined for ten days in tunnels 450 metres below the ground, six “astronauts” transformed this hideout into an otherworldly place and modelled their daily life on the rhythm of life in space. This retro-futuristic scenario, seen in scientific circles and science fiction, questions reality, the projection of reality and the resulting image. Based on their mission, my project transcribes the fantasy of space exploration through immersion, mixing the reality of the situation with artificial images, and questions our place in the universe and our role in the future of humanity.

Sarah Koeke – Can We Always Be This Close

Diploma project by Sarah Koeke

Mention Très bien. Over the past ten years, thanks to video streaming sites, K-Pop has become a global phenomenon, completely reshaping the relationship between the music industry and the image. K-pop stars, also known as idols, have become symbols of globalisation and the cultural power of South Korea and are asserting themselves as role models for many young people in the West. Can We Always Be This Close paints a complex picture of the links between image, identity, masculinity and fan culture. Through their social networks, young fans construct their identity online. The content produced seems superficial and narcissistic, but highlights essential topics such as gender normativity, social relationships or ethnic issues.

Diploma project by Caroline Perrenoud

There is a space between what we call reality and virtual reality, which by definition is unreal. In this in-between space, full of possibilities, identities are created and emancipated. Sexualities are discovered and avatars are roles that we choose to embody. These roles are manifold and represent the multiplicity of the self. Women in their plurality, dissidents, the in-between space enables us to show ourselves, to observe each other, to make ourselves powerful and claim our place and freedom. Through self-sexualisation, the monetisation of the self-image, sexual or romantic relationships, the avatars evolve seamlessly and transform. They decide, take over the space and meet in an immersive video installation.

Mention Bien. Do we still see everything that happens around us ? Insight is a short film set in an architectural social housing complex in Bümpliz-Bern, which offers a unique perspective of the world as viewed by an elderly couple living in the Holenacker district on the outskirts of the Swiss capital. In this project I confront the viewer with a way of life which for us as visual artists and most likely for many others, is unimaginable. I question the spatial notion of a secure/safe space and how it is used and therefore perceived from an external point of view, my own. Insight therefore consists of stepping into the shoes of someone who has blurred vision, understanding what it is like and how it affects the way you live.

A photography that I hold dear generates a collective conversation. Nous voir ensemble takes the form of an investigation into a familiar and founding archive where words and visions meet. From this vernacular photography, voices narrate, project, and imagine. What story, memory and presence do these shots, on and off-screen, generate? How do words bring back to life a picture that has been worn out over time by the viewer’s gaze ?

Lara Ziörjen – No Hard Feelings

Diploma project by Lara Ziörjen

Mention Bien. No Hard Feelings is a personal exploration of the world we live in. Through these images, a powerful vision of our culture emerges – who are we, how do we consume and ultimately, where are we headed? The book shows an abundant world in which fast fashion, artificial food and useless objects accumulate. An important aspect of this work is the combination of images and the work on detail, approaching an object, analysing and understanding it. It addresses the absurdity and banality of everyday life. The images were all taken with a mobile phone, an essential tool that complements my conceptual.

Diploma project by Sofia Papaefthymiou

Mention Bien. Being half-Cypriot half-Swiss, I somehow felt the need to understand my relationship to the territory, borders, exile and my shared origins. Το Ρόδι–The Pomegranate is a short film that has become a tool for exploration and deconstruction, bringing the geopolitical conflicts of my country up to the level of my own conflicts. This project is also a space where I can dream freely of other places, my own island – the reflections of my desires. Unable to reach this homeland, I try to grasp what I do not have, to reproduce the sensations that I experienced there. I collect archives, I commission images. I bring my female body, which I appropriate and re-appropriate through various representations, back to its origin, to find my place and speak up again.

La festa degli innocenti

Diploma project by Stefano Baldini (Collettivo Silencio, in collaboration with Andrea Vescovi)

The Feast of the Innocents is a show born from research we carried out between Savona and Renens, the former city being where we grew up, the latter where we now live. The path that led us to establish a parallel was based on the collection of stories and testimonies of those who lived in these two provinces, which although distant, are linked by strong yet silent similarities. The stories of retirees, immigrants and workers challenged our position in this flow. We therefore tried, by unravelling the relationships with the past, to weave one with the present, paving the way for a concrete search for a community. These stories are interwoven with our experience in the form of projections, music and verbal narration.

Simone Nicola Filippo – For My Girl and My World, Love From Jamie XXX

Diploma project by Simone Nicola Filippo

My work visually explores themes of loneliness, para-social relationships and emotional frustration. These near-monochromes in oil evoke images of distant memories, similar to the stains one might find on the inside of a pillow after years of sleep and cold sweat, memories of online interactions, visual summaries from a mass of digital images that leave us numb until the next morning in an aseptic mental void. References to video games, social media influencers, and ASMR role-plays blend into a cloudy mass, similar in its lack of clarity to sketches that try to illustrate paranormal events or sleep paralysis.

Mathilde Imesch – Reclaim Set: (re)construire son pouvoir

Diploma project by Mathilde Imesch

Reclaim Set is a ceramic set that manifests ecofeminist ideas drawn from the history of witch hunts. The clay used consists of a mixture of mineral and organic materials, thus bringing together the mineral, plant and animal realms. This process also conjures up the four elements during the different phases of modelling, drying and firing. Witch hunts, which began in the 14th century, contributed greatly to the alienation of our connection with nature. The destruction of this heritage has resulted in declining autonomy and loss of power as a community in the face of institutional authority. Building your own Reclaim Set is a first step towards legitimising your power. When we use our experience to change everyday life, we transform reality and fight against cultures of oppression.

Natalia Mimran – Misfits

Diploma project by Natalia Mimran

Misfits is a tribute to unrealised ideas and failed attempts and to round pegs in square holes. Discarded works and experimentations collected at ECAL during the last two years have been reworked to make this monolith. While the visual identity of the gathered material has been erased and the evidence of their physical existence fossilised, reframing their position reveals a hidden potential, as if energy was released during changes in the state of matter. The static presence does not drown out the voices, which are transformed instead into a new hybrid identity.

Ana Marija Adomaityté – Suite

Diploma project by Ana Marija Adomaityté

“The pas de deux is a dance sequence built around a theme, often symbolic of a love story or the partnership inherent in love, with the dancers portraying expressions of affectionate feelings.” On a deep blue floor, a man and a woman perform the gestures of a couple: a contemporary pas de deux about the violence of the norm. If a classical pas de deux is meant as a celebration of love, I believe it is also necessarily the celebration of suffering in love. It is, par  excellence, the performative structure in which the representation of heteronormative romanticism flourishes. Suite – a performance for two people – is a danced resistance to the norms of heterosexual love. Through the exhaustion of gestures, Suite challenges all-powerful romanticism.

Diploma project by Jodie Rudaz

“I remember an abandoned house, on the edge of the river. The river seems, at times, to want to cross the parapet. It has lost its mind, there’s too much light for it. From here on, we should forget its name; but no more than we humans, rivers can’t get rid of the first opinion that they have provoked in the collective mind. You will want to capture it, looking for the oval of a mirror to enclose it, but already the river is flowing towards other moments, always eager for new landscapes. A scent of honey will incite it to confidence: I am the face of everyone, the caress of the gaze that survives the gaze.” Valais de coeur, Pierrette Micheloud

Diploma project by Vanessa Udriot

Coming from the field of architecture, I have developed a particular interest in the representations and perceptions of the spaces and materiality that surround us. I also seek to understand how things are linked to memories and histories, how objects and subjects evolve in their environment. My practice aims to question memory in a broad sense, often in relation to culture, from its different understandings to its many relationships. By associating borders and emotions, the question of identity is increasingly present in my work. I approach these subjects through a mix of personal experiences and a lot of research.

Ines Maestre – I Know How Soft Your Body Is I Scratched My Hands With It

Diploma project by Ines Maestre

Mention Très bien Desire is the engine that drives human life. Desire takes us out of ourselves, makes us dream, makes us excessive, leads us astray. It makes us live in improvisation, disorder and craving, which are the highest expressions of freedom taken to their paroxysm. Desire vindicates life, pleasure, self-realisation and freedom. The work highlights a duality of what is considered good or bad in parallel with the idea of love and desire, since both can coexist but do not seek the same thing. By playing with oppositions between different materials and forms that function as metaphors, the work highlights the price we must pay when the object we desire may not be the best for us, even if it satisfies our appetite.

According to Gaston Bachelard, the house is the physical space that reflects our internal world. We learn to inhabit the house with its traditional inhabitants: the bed, the kitchen table, the doors and windows, the fences, etc. My graduation project, La maison est notre coin du monde (“The House is our Corner of the World”), focuses on one of the oldest pieces of furniture in the world: the folding screen. I question the relationship we have with this domestic object in our home, which is defined as a “shield of beauty”.

Printed paper has been gradually replaced by digital documents such as e-books, e-tickets, e-mails and so on, changing the role of home printers. Yet, at the same time, we still value tangible interactions, such as taking notes on printouts or simply carrying them around for reference. RollerJet offers new possible uses for home printers in our digitalised world. Using a roll of paper instead of sheets, it can print out any length you want, from small sizes for tickets, check-lists or memos to A4 size for larger, typical documents. After printing, the paper can be easily torn off with a single hand.

In addition to awareness raising, one of the main challenges of our throwaway society is the disposal of recyclable waste. We have to start to see our waste as a material resource and sort it efficiently in order to keep it in the material cycle. Bæg is a hybrid between a shopping bag and a recycling bin, made from recycled truck tarp from FREITAG. Unlike ordinary bins, the portable bag eliminates the need for bin liners. A wall hook makes it easy to fix, fill and remove the bag. Bæg aims to change the stigma towards domestic waste and acts not only as a bin for home but also as a tote bag on the go.

Passive heating systems are constantly evolving and becoming ever more present, yet in the field of public construction, the need for radiators is recognised as predominant in large open spaces. This provides an opportunity to rethink the traditional radiator archetype and its integration as an architectural element in symbiosis with passive heating systems. Plinth is a reinterpretation of the traditional radiator typology that bridges the gap between seasonal use as an object of heating and comfort and a year-round sitting solution. In collaboration with Zehnder, the design is based on a modular construction system that allows freedom of customisation.

In general, the use of second-hand foam products is not recommended for newborns due to the risk of mould, dust mites and bacteria. They are also a source of toxins that the baby may inhale. Babybo is therefore made entirely of non-toxic, organic material and allows for a biodegradation process at the end of its use. The mattress core is made of hypoallergenic and breathable mycelium foam (Mycoflex™) and banana fibre textile (Bananatex®).

Maxwell Ashford – RUEI-01 - Robotically Recyclable Shoe. In collaboration with ABB.

Diploma project by Maxwell Ashford

Mention Très bien Prix BCV + Prix Eyes on Talents In standard recycling, objects arrive in industrial warehouses facilities as unknown entities, with no communication about the components. They are fed into shredders which reduce them to a mixture of materials that are then painstakingly sorted. Coatings, glues, colours and other aspects mean that pure material fractions are near impossible to extract. The RUEI-01 shoe concept was designed to be recycled by a robot and contains all the information pertaining to itself in a digital form. This allows robots to “un-manufacture” the shoe, disassembling and separating materials with all data provided, even colour codes and original sources of materials. Existing recyclable shoes focus on mono-materialising. RUEI-01 evaluates the potential for multi-material durability and performance, with recycling by automation.

For each episode, I designed a vehicle or a camera device adapted to the guests and their means of transport. These tailor-made objects are designed to create a surprising interview setting and to serve as a camera set-up to capture the conversation on the go without a big film crew. The daily commute is a transition period between private and professional life and forms the stage for an interview which sheds light on the guests’ personality and their passion for their job. The interview series is an experimentation to develop a personal ongoing project as an extension of my practice as a product designer.

Alexander Schul – Monomaterial Bra

Diploma project by Alexander Schul

Three points are problematic regarding the current method of bra production: the assembly usually consists of different materials, which makes the object difficult to recycle; the traditional sewing process takes time, resulting in outsourcing of labour into third world countries; and the use of standard parts and sizes does not allow much customisation, making bras often uncomfortable to wear. The Monomaterial Bra is a vision of how bras could be manufactured in the future. Using a robot arm, soft and hard layers of TPU can be extruded on a curvature, resulting in a bra made from a single material. The process is fully automated and allows for customisation.

Diploma project by Oscar Kwong

Belay is an active office chair that questions the state of our sitting culture. All stuck in the same position, hunched over desks, our posture undeniably suffers. The chair lies somewhere between the bouncy extravagance of exercise balls and the technical possibilities offered by ergonomic chairs. Correcting one’s posture requires a conscious effort. This awareness is initiated by an active element consisting of an oscillating seat combined with a rotating base. This mechanism actively stimulates the muscles of the seated person, making them reflect on the quality of their posture. The initial intention was to inject a level of playfulness into the office space that did not interfere with work, reflecting a more balanced approach to our health at work.

The project explores the concept of memories and the importance of the construction of an archive in the digital realm.  Focused on the interaction between images and text, I let AI analyse my memories and then reinterpret the captions to create new images. New memories are created in the form of five different books and five slide shows on a modular installation. Floating between human and non-human, the dialogue between myself and the machine comes into being and enables you to immerse yourself in a new data set of my memories through the gaze of technology.

I’m not a Loner is a photo-based installation in which Manqin acts as an archaeologist digging into the forgotten and insignificant part of life. The work consists of three resin spinning tops, four concrete blocks, five T-shirts, twelve lighters and two plates. By treating them as historical artifacts – displayed on plinths of different heights, evoking a forest-like environment – the work intends to construct a narrative of individual history through memories, relations and objects. While individual history describes fear, anger and guilt (personal, family-related, societal and historical), Manqin wishes to increase the role of the individual in history to evoke the importance of being oneself and to confront modern alienation.

What is a body, where does it start, where does it end? How do we experience having a body and being a body, especially among other bodies? How can we rethink relations at a broader level between human and non-human actors to establish a more ethical lifestyle? The project aims to interrogate the notion of bodily matter and challenge the assumption that our bodies end at the skin. Instead, they are redefined as radically open systems, human and non-human assemblages, bodily chimeras, micro-biotic multi-species in a constant process of becoming. Matter, when recognised as an active agent, helps to acknowledge infinite interactions within complex networks of agency between various porous entities and membranes. Trans-corporeality disrupts any division between a body and the world.

Diploma project by Maeva Bosko

Entering the Unknown is an immersive experience that aims to alter consciousness during a journey of initiation and introspection. The forest has always enchanted the collective mind with its wildness and authenticity. A peaceful nature as well as a realm of mystery, the forest exudes an almost supernatural force. Crossing the threshold of the forest, because of its deep roots, means opening the door to the unconscious and triggering the awakening of overwhelming fears, terrors or even phobias. According to Carl Jung, these terrors translate the fear of seeing the contents of the unconscious revealed – the fear of meeting oneself. When the experience starts, we can no longer back away or hide. Accept yourself and leave nothing behind.

Diploma project by Joanna Wierzbicka

What is a body, where does it start, where does it end? How do we experience having a body and being a body, especially among other bodies? How can we resituate ourselves within earth others, and rethink relations on a wider level between human and nonhuman actants to account for a more ethical living? The project aims to interrogate the notion of bodily matter, recapture our corporeality and challenge the assumption that our bodies end at the skin. Instead, they are redefined as radically open systems, human and non-human assemblages, corporeal chimeras, microbiotic multi-species in the constant process of becoming. Matter, when recognised as an active agent, helps to acknowledge infinite interactions within complex networks of agency between various porous corporealities and entities. Trans-corporeality disrupts divisions between a body and the world. Bodies leave traces everywhere, ascribing themselves into various corporeal, technological, political narratives, but also traces are ascribed onto bodies - mediating and altering their flesh. As captured by Haraway in the figuration of compost - we are always becoming with others, together creating a lively matter of compost, composing and decomposing each other. “Nothing is connected to everything, everything is connected to something” takes a form of an installation, a speculative self-portrait as compost, built out of images of my own body (made with different apparatuses including Scanning Electron Microscope, digital microscopes) mixed with still lifes of food and different materials representing the transformation and movement, as in compost. Additionally, sculptures are accompanied by the video that expands on the idea of corporeal companionship and brings in the notion of uncanny-like lump of flesh covered with skin. It is a performative act, a result of wondering how to become a microorganism, a bacteria and if I am already enough of one. All the parts of installation, exploring the line between oppositions such as human/nonhuman, internal/external, self/the other, refer to the definition of an abject and are meant to translate that moment, or a sensation - how a breakdown in meaning, something expelled from “I” eventually comes to define “I”.

Diploma project by Benedetta Bovani

Mention Très bien Acquerino is a family project that revolves around the Acquerino Nature Reserve in Tuscany, Italy. Growing up near the place, the idea for this project was born out of the curiosity and affection that both me and my brother have for it. We felt the need to create something that reflected our thoughts and emotions about such a place while at the same time letting people know about it. Bringing together our knowledge, memories and skills we designed two books. The first book is a travel guide that aims to inform the reader about the reserve: from the flora to the fauna, hiking itineraries and nearby villages. The second one is an album where we collected words and photographs that reflect on the value of nature and of memory. Two specific typefaces were also designed for the books.

Diploma project by Lucile Billot

Mention Excellent Prix HES-SO This multi-script typeface family covers Latin, Greek and Cyrillic, balanced to be typeset side by side in a homogeneous way. Designed for text purposes, it includes several weights and italics for each script, and the sharpness of the drawing (its “digitality”) is made to match contemporary writings. *The hand, the pencil; then the broad pen, the nodes, the handles.* Reflected in the shapes is a tension between a tool-based approach (through instrokes/outstrokes and calligraphic features) and an outline-based one. The calligraphic “frontline” (as G. Noordzij calls it) sometimes breaks and each contour, each line, is thought of as an autonomous shape. Both approaches play a crisp choreography, resulting in a scalable typeface that works at several sizes.

Bi-scriptual type design is a challenge for graphic designers, even more so in a world of cross-cultural exchange. Kleisch is a Latin serif typeface designed to work with Chinese Ming-style fonts. It is a synthesis of baroque and neo-classical typography, as the types of Nicholas Kis, Christoffel van Dijck or Johann Michael Fleischmann have a similar stroke construction to CJK (Chinese-Korean-Japanese) Ming-style typefaces. Kleisch does not match with a specific font. However, as a variable font, it offers adjustable axes (weight and contrast) to adapt with different Ming typefaces.

Romain Tronchin – Supertifo

Diploma project by Romain Tronchin

Supertifo is a typeface family of five styles inspired by the lettering on the banners of ultras. Born at the beginning of the 1970s in the Years of Lead in Italy, ultras were inspired by communist groups to support their club with banners, chants and smoke bombs, taking this passion to the extreme. At the same time, a group of scientists called the Club of Rome published an alarming report about the future of the planet. This report did not have the expected impact and 50 years later the situation is more than worrying. What would have happened if the Club of Rome had been supported by a group of ultras, like a football club?

Simona Alina Andone – Leisure Time

Diploma project by Simona Alina Andone

Free time. Did it exist in the past? Does it still exist? What implication does it have for society? Nowadays, the distinction between leisure and work is more subtle, calling into question the true meaning and importance of free time. The topic was widely discussed during the 13th Triennale di Milano in 1964. Through the appropriation of archival iconography and a fictional dialogue with essays from 1964 and nowadays, the editorial project aims to highlight the ambiguity between past and present in their connection to free time. Cordusio is a typeface family designed as part of the editorial project. Inspired by 1960s Italian type design, with an added contemporary touch, it is available in Display and Text, with slanted italic for both cuts.

Maël Bächtold – Milkshake

Diploma project by Maël Bächtold

Milkshake is a typeface family which was initiated by anemoia (nostalgia felt for a period in the past that was not lived) for the 70s. The music, the freedom, the vibes, and mostly the aesthetics in terms of type and graphic design of that period strongly influenced the direction of the project. Milkshake is divided into two sub-families. The first one, Milkshake Display is the spine of the project: its voluptuous curves and generous drops combined with sharp edges give it a dynamic look while its alternates and swashes exaggerate its flow and funkiness. To add a contemporary touch and versatility, the family is complemented by text cuts, which are much calmer, friendlier and more stable, suited for longer lines in small sizes.

Antonio D’Elisiis – Hierax Antiqua

Diploma project by Antonio D’Elisiis

Hierax Antiqua is a contemporary typeface family composed of 24 styles with text and display cut, suitable for editorial publication and identity projects. The typeface is inspired by an ancient book printed in Venice around 1750, with various punches cut in different periods (1550 – 1780). Hence the aim of the project is to capture the spirit of Renaissance and Baroque types by analysing the works of Nicolas Jenson, Francesco Griffo, Claude Garamont, Pierre Haultin, Robert Granjon, Hendrik van den Keere, Christoffel van Dijck, Nicholas Kis, Simon de Colines, Guillaume Le Bé, Pierre-Simon Fournier le Jeune and Giambattista Bodoni. Hierax Antiqua aims to crystallise this era with an added contemporary feel through rigorous digital design.

Anne Seseke – Machine like Man

Diploma project by Anne Seseke

This publication focuses on the link between humans and machines through the lens of the keyboard – a visual story of the evolution of the keyboard over the years, alongside its user. The curated text and images, playing on scales, give us insight into this discreet object which has become an essential part of our  daily lives: the architecture of the keys, the act of typing, the choreography of the hands, the notion of pocket-size and handheld objects, and the constant evolution of our idea of the office. The content is supported by a bespoke font, inspired by early computer printing techniques. I played with a dot matrix grid to create a more human typeface, resulting in a family of four styles: MLM Dot, Vector, Pixel and Italic.

TYPE DESIGN

Alberto Malossi – Beaujon

Diploma project by Alberto Malossi

Beaujon is a typeface family consisting of five weights and five corresponding italics. Primarily designed for contemporary text setting, its origins can be traced to Pierre Simon Fournier’s contrast model (1764) and landmark Dutch baroque types, such as the ones by Nicholas Kis (1690). Beaujon leverages its influences liberally and quite unsystematically, striving to build tension among rather organic gestures and an intrinsically digital construction. This essential discrepancy gives Beaujon a peculiar effervescence in both running text and larger, more flamboyant display usage.

TYPE DESIGN

Marcel Saidov – Semantik

Diploma project by Marcel Saidov

Mention Très bien Semantik is a typeface family which resulted from research into typefaces for telephone directories and which revisits the “heavy-top” emphasis to increase legibility. Semantik is loosely based on Ladislas Mandel’s Nordica and Colorado, as well as Roger Excoffon’s Antique Olive . The project explores the technical aspects and stylistic elements of typefaces for telephone directories in a screen-based environment, improving legibility in the contexts of both continuous reading on screen and reading while scrolling. The typeface adapts to various screen environments as a variable font with a responsive axis, and adjusts to the dimensions of your computer or mobile device. Semantik contains in total 30 separate styles and includes five weights and italics for desktop, mobile and list versions.

Paul Christ – Microcosm of Proportion

Diploma project by Paul Christ

“Cosmos, noun. The universe, especially when it is thought of as an ordered system.” Inspired by spiritual movements such as the Theosophical Society or the vegetarian colony of Monte Verità, this project explores the influence of geometry, numbers and systems on the arts and design. The result is a book consisting of three parts that reflect the development of the project. It begins with the presentation of the research material and continues with a practical exploration of geometrical figures and their proportions. The third chapter applies my insights on the development of a proportional system which forms the base of the typeface family used throughout the book.

Nicolas Bernklau – Strength in Fragility

Diploma project by Nicolas Bernklau

Strength in Fragility i s a dialogue between fashion (Anna Deller-Yee, RCA) and type design (Nicolas Bernklau, ECAL). To find the intersections of the two design fields, shapes are explored and brought to life: from 2D to 3D, shape to object, printable to wearable. A publication showcases a common shape pool made up of type letterings as a foundation for the development of fashion silhouettes, woven materials and prints around themes of individuality, strength and vulnerability. To enhance the feeling of the project, the accompanying sans serif typeface family Resial was designed. Resial balances the functionality of condensed Swiss/German typefaces from the early 20th century and idiosyncrasies found while researching Latin typefaces in the Japanese graphic context.

TYPE DESIGN

Lucile Billot – Parallax LCG

Diploma project by Lucile Billot

This multi-script typeface family covers Latin, Greek and Cyrillic, balanced to be typeset side by side in a homogeneous way. Designed for text purposes, it includes several weights and italics for each script, and the sharpness of the drawing (its “digitality”) is made to match contemporary writings. *The hand, the pencil; then the broad pen, the nodes, the handles.* Reflected in the shapes is a tension between a tool-based approach (through instrokes/outstrokes and calligraphic features) and an outline-based one. The calligraphic “frontline” (as G. Noordzij calls it) sometimes breaks and each contour, each line, is thought of as an autonomous shape. Both approaches play a crisp choreography, resulting in a scalable typeface that works at several sizes.

Valentin Calame – Jean Starobinski. Relations critiques

Diploma project by Valentin Calame

Jean Starobinski. Relations critiques is a research project on the curation of digitised literary artefacts. Initiated by the Swiss National Library, it is structured around an online exhibition based on the archive of prominent critic Jean Starobinski. Through this project, I explored how to take advantage of emerging technologies to create alternative experiences for the public. Around concepts such as the “Aura” of digital artefacts, “Tangiality” and adaptive spaces, I was able to define parameters to increase cognitive gain, visitor engagement and emotional connection with digitised objects. The knowledge generated by this first exhibition will serve as a model for future iterations. In collaboration with : Apptitude SA Swiss National Library (NL)

Romain Talou – Future Heritage

Diploma project by Romain Talou

Future Heritage investigates how to make long-term, high-density information storage technologies more tangible. Working in the context of cultural heritage, the project allows institutions to keep their archives alive using DNA data storage for generations to come. Through a process of design research, the Future Heritage project explores how to make this synthetic DNA storage relevant for institutions today and far into the future. The resulting DNA storage object is designed to withstand environmental and societal changes over the next two thousand years. Using nano-engraving and a semiological approach, the object gives tangible hints and previews of the rich content that lies within it.
